Saint Michael the Archangel,

Powerful Spirit of Truth

Take my hand and lead me to Divine Truth

Protect me from all the evil in the world

Guard me and compensate for all my weaknesses

Change, bless, and restore the consequences of all my mistakes

Carry me on the wings of your love and might

To the Throne of God and

Pray to Him with me forever.

Amen.

O loving messenger of the Incarnation, descend upon all those for whom I wish peace and happiness. Spread your wings over the cradles of the newborn babies, you who  announced the coming of the Infant Jesus. Give to the young, a lily petal from the virginal scepter in your hand. Cause the Ave Maria to re-echo in all hearts that they may find grace and joy through Mary. Finally, recall the sublime words spoken on the day of the Annunciation– “Nothing is impossible with God,” and repeat them in hours of trial–to all I love–that their confidence in Our Lord may be reanimated, when all human help fails. Amen.

Glorious Archangel Saint Raphael,

great prince of the heavenly court,

you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace.

You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air,

Consoler of the afflicted,

And refuge of sinners.

I beg you,

Assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life,

As once you helped the young Tobias on his travels.

Because you are the medicine of God;

I humbly pray to you to heal the many infirmities

of my soul and the ills that afflict my body.

I especially ask of you the favour …….

And the great grace of purity

To prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit.

AMEN.
